I very rarely venture into 1993. But just by accident I found this little gem:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1993-06-26.sbd.tetzeli-fix-7742.76834.flac16
One of the finest shows of 93????
And Hornsby is there too.
Hot Feel Like a stranger opening. Good Bird Song. Fantastic Terrapin. Even Way to go Home is good.

I did not realise Dead could sound so good in 93.

Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

Kind regards from the land of the midnight sun.

Hornsby has a great story on how he invited Don Henley to one of these DC shows and Henley just kept telling him how bad it was. Ha

The Eagles is playing here in a couple of weeks. Not really a fan, but have been debating with myself if I should go or not.
And you gave me the answer. Thanks.
Don Henley, you are so wrong. Boo.

Unless they patched things with Don Felder I'd probably pass too at this point.

Couldn`t agree with Pat and Richard more.

And listen to this:

Hmmm...trying to think..was that the show where Don Henley did the walk on in the middle of someone's set? (Sting?) I forget. Or was this the show that Jerry sat in on "Walking on the Moon". Maybe both cameos occured.

I went to two shows that tour: the one at Giants with the Bertha/Good Lovin (2nd show of tour?) and the last show of the tour, the 26th. It was like night and day...or rather March and July. The weather for much of the spring, including this early summer tour show at Giants, was cold and wet. Did not feel like summer tour at all. However, by the 26th it certainly did. We had a heat wave that lasted the rest of the summer and the 26th in DC was hot. Show was also hot, not tentative like the Giants one, but out there. Spacey and tight.

Hey thanks for posting. I rarely listen to the late 90s unless there's a specific recommendation here (which rarely happens lately) and I'm enjoying this one. Good call!

June of 1993 is a really wonderful shining tour in the context of the last few years. A lot of Jerry's playing this month is simply superb; crisp, clear, focused and precise. This was the last tour with Rosebud before the Cripe Lightning Bolt guitar radically changed his tone, and it is a sweet swan song in many ways. It is certainly not a high point for setlists and inter-song continuity, but the details of the performance often have a vitality and sharp rhythmic spring that hearkens back to long-gone days, and there are several nice versions of the excellent "last group" of Garcia/Hunter songs, which were some of their strongest material since the halcyon days of their early 70s neo-americanan period.

The final pair of shows at RFK make a nice conclusion to the tour with the addition of Hornsby on the accordion. I'm glad to see these shows getting some love!

I saw two shows that month: 6/8 and 6/9 at the Palace in Auburn Hills, MI. 6/8 was sort of uneven but had an amazing Bird Song to end the truncated first set.

6/9, on the other hand, had a number of highlights: A good Help> Slip> Frank's to open, a great Bertha to close set one, and a spell-binding Wharf Rat with some pretty heady jamming down the stretch.

Yes, I like both of those shows a lot and also the next one at Buckeye - I think the precision of rhythmic subdivision in Jerry's playing is about as good as it ever was in many passages. Not "all time great" shows, but they have a lot of moments that make me say "yes!" because they show very good technical musicianship.

You live in the Arctic Circle? Norway? If so, I think you are a first for both in the roll call. First Continental member too.

I actually live close to Oslo, which is a bit south of the arctic circle. Although I was born up north, north of the arctic circle. Ain`t to many Deadheads here. And sadly, when Bob Weir was here a couple a years ago, jamming with the Dead-tribute band Deadaheads I managed to miss it, cause there was no publicity about it at all. Too bad.

I cross my fingers that Furthur will do a european tour, but honestly I don`t think it will happen. Ratdog played Germany and UK in the early 2000`s. But that was just before I joined the bus.

I was at the whole tour and that version of Uncle John's Band was one of my favorite moments of the tour. I had lots of fun.

FYI: Here is a copy of the band's digital master soundboard tape which I transferred for you :)

Thanks for the rec; I'm like Jobygoob in that I rarely venture this far unless I get a specific rec (and a link.)

What always catches me off-guard with these mid-90's shows are the strange sounds that are coming from the band that you never heard, say, pre-85. I swear that someone, I assume Hornsby, is playing one of those ________ (the thing that you strap to both hands and you open and close your arms and I think they're real popular around Wisconsin-way,) during Tom Thumb. (A song that I really like and that I wished they had played earlier in their trajectory.)


Edit: IKYR has some kind of instrument going that makes the song sound like a crazy, cajun-zydeco dance ditty.
